any comments about this wine?


#4

I am pretty sure you can pick this up at Costco in the bay area, if you wanted to try one before buying 6.


#5

So, given there are six of these and it’s called Sextant, this has to be a Latin conundrum. Why are there six 'tant’s? And what does this apparently Latin word ‘tant’ mean?


#6

$62 plus $7 shipping yields $69…

… ooh, la-la! my favorite!

Plus the photo with one bottle upright and the rest upside down provides the perfect subliminal reinforcement of this mutually satisfying SEXtant Zin…

Coincidence? I think not!.. :slight_smile:


#7

Abbreviated from Sex - taint, hence the $69 price w/shipping…

I’ve never purchased wine on woot before, and don’t plan to buy this one…but Others should.
I tasted the 08 Central Coast at the ZAP (Zinfandel Advocates & Producers) Festival on Tasted at Zin Festival at Fort Mason SF 1/30/2010.
One of the best values out there. Slightly one dimensional, good fruit but balanced, very drinkable. This was one of the more noteworthy Zins of the 60 or so I tried that day because of its PQR.

I now have some in my cellar but I paid $15+ tax at K&L.

I live nearby the winery and this is one of my favorite Zins. It’s well priced and I drink it by the gallon. Sextant’s pricier Weelhouse Zin is tied for my absolute favorite (with Norman Monster). This is a superb wine for it’s price. My problem is that the wine is the same price in the local grocery store as it is here on woot, so I will pass. However, if you are not a Central Coast resident, this is a MUST BUY.

Quite the ringing endorsement


#12

Perfect example of a quote taken out of context. The poster went on to say he had tasted this wine, had like it and had purchased this wine. That is a ringing endorsement for the wine. He just doesn’t buy any wine from woot.


#13

Well I’m a huge fan of the Chronicle Zin (sold here on 5/2) as it’s quite tasty and pairs awesome with BBQ and other summer foods. These are rated similar - 87 or 88 pts on CT. However, tasting notes on CT are somewhat limited for this.

Has anyone out there tried both? And could you offer a comparison? Thanks!

I assume we’ll also be seeing some Lab Rat reports later today…


#14

1 case for me please. Thanks Woot.
i’ll drink 1 and hold the other 11 for a while.

love the comments.


#15

I live in bodunk southern illinois with, shall I say, limited wine choices at the liquor stores. I love wine woot. I get to purchase and try different wines from so many different regions. This sounds like a splendid wine.


#16

No shipping to Wyoming. Sad for me. Hope everyone else enjoys it! :stuck_out_tongue:


#17

so I’m guessing that I can’t get this particular wine shipped to D.C.? Bummer.


#18

if you’d just go up north a bit to chicago, john hart has one of the finest collection around… google john hard fine wine.


#19

Sucker for Zin, woulda bought without the kudos here. In for a sixer.


#20

Maybe Craig and Nancy are into maritime activities?

On a wine related note, these sell for $16/bottle on their site with $32 shipping. If it’s a decent drinker, this is a good deal.
